    Went to Nashville for the weekend with some cash burning a hole in my pocket. Been gasing for a big boy Gretsch for a long time so it was between that or a PRS

    Went to Corner Music and fell in love with this! Almost walked out without it but my lovely wife made me buy it because, and I quote, “you’ll regret it and whine about it later.”

    can’t argue with that.

  4. That photo does not look like she made you buy it. If my wife gave me that look, I would have one less guitar. But congrats!

    Tennies are so lovely to look at. That red is so spot-on. It owns every stage. In fact they look more spectacular to me than the model 6120. Basically the same guitar but way cooler. Congrats. And congrats on your wife being cool with your hobby.
    Mine made me sell 35+ beloved guitars over the last years and 12+ cool amps (plus a super cool sports car and my Harley) to pay for her silly financial decisions.

    Priceless you managed to get, “that look” in the picture! Those are some very cool guitars and I love that color.

    Congratulations! That's a fine guitar you have there. And really, if you're going to buy a guitar in Nashville, what could be more fitting than a Tennessee Rose?

    Great story and so nice to have an understanding and supportive wife! I went to Corner Music for strings when I broke one while staying in 12 South for a long weekend. No I was not gigging. Just playing for me and the missus when we got home after a day touring Music City. What a great guitar shop! One of the guys was playing some really sweet fingerpicking while I was there. I thanked him for the "treat".

    Congrats for the Rose and the Bride!
    My gal did the same for me when I bought my White Falcon. She caught me drooling over it on and said “So, are you gonna buy it? I think you should.”
    I clicked add to cart about a millisecond later.

    Geez. So glad I took the Red Pill and went MGTOW.
